Uttarakhand (उत्तरांचल) became the 27th state of the Republic of India on November 9, 2000 after a relatively short and peaceful struggle by its people in the 1990s, having previously comprised part of Uttar Pradesh.
Ram Das. Gaumukh.
Ram Das is a 76 th old sadhu from Mathura. This is shot on the banks of the Ganges, in Gaumukh, he was doing his puja. By the way, to shoot this I had to be in the Ganges at about 40 meters from where it comes out of the glacier, it was "cold"... An amazing man, speeding going up .. I had trouble keeping up the pace.
